German engineering giant Krones is at the forefront of IT solutions to allow close line performace analysis to help beverage manufacturers avoid downtime, and the firm’s IT solutions sales manager Timo Frankl told and that the company’s solutions ensured efficient production and a ‘win of money’.

Challenged as to why, for instance, a medium-sized player in the beer sector would be interested in further line performance analysis (given effective existing metrics) Frankl outlined the advantages of Krones’ continually updated Line Performance Analyser (LPA) software module.

He said:“If such a customer asked this question, my first question to you would be ‘how do you actually measure your efficiency at the moment?’ Because a lot of our customers do it manually right now.”
